    Lockhart Road

    Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lockhart Road is a road spanning the whole length of Wan Chai from east to west on the Hong Kong Island of Hong Kong. It begins at Arsenal Street in the west and ends in East Point Road in East Point. The road was named after Sir James Stewart-Lockhart, Colonial Secretary of Hong Kong from 1895 to 1902, who signed the Convention for the Extension of Hong Kong Territory. Part of Lockhart Road near its western end is considered as a red light district with many bars, pubs and nightclubs. When the navy of the United States visits Hong Kong, the crews land near Wan Chai and congregate in the area around Lockhart Road. On 17 December 2005, during the WTO Conference, protestors from South Korea broke the police defensive line on Lockhart Road and attempted to break into the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai North. This action developed into a major clash with the Hong Kong Police Force.
